The Australian Out of Home (OOH) industry this week announced an increase of 14.8% on net media revenue for Q2 2022, reporting $249.5 million, up from
$217.3 million for the same quarter in 2021. Digital OOH (DOOH) revenue accounts for 62.4 per cent of total net media revenue year-to-date, an increase over the recorded 58.3 per cent* for the same period last year.
OMA CEO Charmaine Moldrich told us “The industry continues to strengthen showing our channel’s unique capability to be effective for both short-term activations and long-term brand building.”
“The first six months in 2022 has seen a flurry of activity with the launch in January of a raft of tools making easier to plan and buy Out of Home campaigns. This includes the Neuro Impact Factor (NIF), a qualitative metric which goes beyond attention to measure the impact of Out of Home campaigns. The NIF is part of the upgrade of MOVE which allows for the measurement of digital campaigns; both metrics are supported by industry-wide standards. These initiatives have undoubtably spurred our recovery with increased market confidence in our channel. We have several new tools to introduce in Q3 which will provide even greater transparency about audiences and how they engage with our signs”.
Year-to-date revenue has increased 19.5% and is $478.6 million, an increase from 47.3% on 2020 and sitting behind pre-pandemic 2019 by -3.9%.
The OMA has added seven new members this year: Civic Outdoor, GoTransit Media Group, Helio, Hivestack, The Media Shop,Tonic Media Network, and Vicinity Centres.
According to figures released by Zenith, Australian advertising spend is expected to grow 5% in 2022, off the back of 18% in 2021.
